Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District’s overall performance rating has been upgraded to “C” with a score of 77, a two letter-grade improvement from last year’s rating of “F” with a score of 59.

That information comes from the 2018-2019 accountability ratings the Texas Education Agency released on Thursday.

“Districts or schools earn a “C” for acceptable performance when they serve many students well, but there are still many other students who need more support to succeed academically,” reads the TEA website.

Under the TEA’s rating system, campuses and districts receive a number score of 1 through 100, with a correlating letter grade, based on three performance measurements: student achievement, school progress, and closing the gaps. The last indicator refers to how specific student populations perform.

“We are proud of our teachers, students, and families for doing the work that needs to be done, and we are looking forward to making more improvement next year,” said UCISD Superintendent Hal Harrell.
